Progress Report--What Was I Thinking?

I'm still making strip sets and looking at them. No pictures yet. Several participants are dyeing the challenge fabric, but I am leaning toward leaving that bright white background. Am enjoying the PINK. Leaving the white really makes the pink pop! Reminds me of a class I took one time with Marilyn Belford; we listed (and cut examples of) things/colors/shapes we liked, and then things/colors/shapes we hated. THEN we had to make a small fabric piece from each of the  groups. Yep, you guessed it--pink was in the hated group, and I made some really neat pieces with a pink theme. Maybe it's time to work with pink again. And brown. And lots of other colors I am finding in my box of cut strips left from other projects.

Yep, I am a member of the "I hate pink" club. i's ok in miniscule bits and looks great with orange -- but otherwise, bleh.

I am member of the "all colors are wonderful" club. Red is my favorite color, but all colors are wonderful when they work in a quilt.

Pink is in the "red" family and my Red quilt that I made (hangs over the couch) has red, dark red, brown red, hot pink, pale pink, orange, and much more in it.

I don't have any pink clothing, nor do I have any pink walls in my house.
